  1. I’m addicted to peanut butter too… the kids hide it from me so I don’t eat it all. 😉 I’m also glad you started this blog. You’ve taught me a lot, not just about CP, but about how to be courageous! Thank you!


    1. My mum would only ever buy the really tiny pocket-sized jars when I was little cause I’d try and eat it straight from the tub every chance I got.

      Aww! Thank you so much for your kind words!


  2. Thank you for thinking of me. Just like you, I prefer being hot than being cold. I guess cold is tough for those folks with disabilities; that’s what I gathered from the blogs I follow by physically-challenged people.
